Abstract: A new cobalt(II) coordination polymer, namely [Co0.5
(bimb)1.5]n·nClO4 (bimb =1,4-bis(imidazol-1-yl)-butane) (1), has
been prepared and fully characterized by single-crystal X-ray
diffraction, elemental analyses, IR spectroscopy and X-ray powder
diffraction pattern analysis (PXRD). Of the compound, the
Co(II) center is octahedral coordinated with bimb serving as a
bridging ligand by employing six N-donor to coordinate with
the Co(II) center. It exbihits three-dimensional network structure
via bimb ligands.
